To celebrate Better Breakfast Month we are sharing our top 5 favorite power breakfasts for our pretty, healthy, on-the-go girls. As summer is coming to an end we are ready to start-up our power mode for the new busy year. We chose these insanely-easy breakfasts food bloggers eat all the time and do not bother sharing with us!
1.) Nutty-Berry Avocado Smoothie: This is unlike other banana and fruit-based smoothies because it isn’t super sweet. The avocado makes it creamy, and all the other seeds and nuts provide healthy fats that leave you feeling satisfied. Purée 1 cup non-dairy milk, 3 raw walnuts, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 1 tablespoon cashew or almond butter, 1/4 avocado, a splash of vanilla extract, 1 or 2 rutted dates, and about 1 cup of frozen organic berries in a blender. You’re done! For a thicker consistency, add 1 tablespoon of coconut flour. – Renee Hunt, Soul Beet
2.) Overnight Chia Oat Pudding: My no-brainer breakfast is a mixture of oats, chia seeds, and natural sweeteners: Mix 2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1/3 cup dry rolled oats, a dash of cinnamon, a drizzle of maple syrup, and 1 cup almond milk together. Place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, give it a stir and add your favorite fruit. It’s easy to transport and so deliciously healthy. – Gena Hamshaw, Choosing Raw
3.) Hot and Cold Oatmeal: A go-to breakfast in my home because it’s quick, healthy, filling, and incredibly versatile. Bring 1 3/4 cups water to boil and then stir in 1 cup oats and cook until creamy. Turn off the heat and stir in 1/3 cup milk. Top off with frozen fruit like blueberries, strawberries, or mangos. The combination of hot and cold provides a great morning boost. A sprinkle of brown sugar and some sliced almonds, and breakfast is served. – Kelly Senyei, Just a Taste
4.) Power Toast: Who doesn’t love nut butter and bananas? This protein-packed breakfast is easy and full of flavor. Spread 1 slice Ezekiel toast with 1 heaping tablespoon almond butter. Top with half a thinly sliced banana, sprinkle with chia and/or hemp seeds, and drizzle with a little raw honey. – Serena Wolf, Domesticate Me
5.) Microwave Omelet: I love this recipe because it takes less than five minutes to make and is both nutritious and filling. Whisk 2 eggs, a little milk, salt, and pepper in a microwave-safe bowl. Add your favorite omelet ingredients like bacon, bell peppers, mushroom, and shredded cheese. Cover the bowl lightly with a paper towel, and cook in the microwave for about 1 to 2 minutes until the egg is fully cooked. – Jennifer Lee, Kirbie’s Cravings
